Coney Island Beach


Monday was the last day that the beaches and public pools were open in New York so there were a lot of people out enjoying the beach at Coney Island. It was such a beautiful day. (I read that one of the lifeguards at the Coney Island beach had to rescue a little shark that had gotten too close to shore that day. I'm glad I didn't see any sharks!)

Farewell to summer!

The closing (how come?)of places as this they are always sad, it is small piece of world that goes away, a hope of happiness in less.

Wow, they close the beach? I would think it would be kept open until fall ... that's too bad for the weekenders.

If they did that in Hawai‘i, you'd have some really ticked off people, and no tourists. That would not be good.

Hi everyone!

I just meant that the beaches are closed for swimming (no lifeguards and such) after the summer season. You can still walk on them.

Good pic Lori,
When I read this first, I thought just like others. But after your explanation, I got the idea.
Seems you had a great fun on this weekend,...and good you were not close to any sharks.

I can't believe they can actually close a beach!

I really want to go there!!
It looked nice, but crowded!!
Yes, I read about the story with the shark and life guard, too!

I also never realised that they close the beaches. Aren't people allowed to walk on them in the winter.

Yeah, I read that the lifeguard saved the shark from the swimmers. They had isolated it in the shallow water and surrounded it and was beating it. He picked it up and took it out into deeper water.
